DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:30 P.M.) – The Syrian forces are using heavy artillery and rocket shelling, in addition to airstrikes to expel the Islamic State from its last stronghold in east Swaida countryside.
Led by the elite 4th Division, the government troops managed to liberate large chunks of lands including Sheikh Hussein Tomb and the surrounding areas.
